Medical first in Haiti, Conjoined twin separation

Here is a picture of the Conjoined twin who were successfully separated in Haiti at University Hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti

Two conjoined female twins were successfully separated after a seven-hour surgery. This was Haiti's first time performing such a sensitive surgery on conjoined twins.

Four medical teams performed the surgery: Hopital Bernard Mevs, PIH, Children's Hospital in LA and Mirebalais Hospital.

The medical team consisted of a plastic surgeon; general surgeons; a pediatrician; two anesthesiologists, and ICU specialists.

First Lady Sophia Martelly visited the hospital and happily held the newly separated infants.
